Julie Smeros is an Australian artist living and working in Brisbane.
With training in both photography and ceramics, Smeros works principally with clay. Interested in the experience of the first generation Greek Australian, Smeros’ vessel forms invite the known or learnt memory with evocations of the ancient vessel.
This portrait of Smeros is her passport photo, age 10. During this time, Smeros spent 4 months travelling with her uncle, visiting all the museums in Greece, shaping her unique aesthetic.
